Esteghlal came back after being a goal down, and defeated Sepahan 2-1 in Azadi Stadium. Therefore, The Blues of Tehran have finished second in the league, with 57 points- only one more than third place Tractor Sazi, although The Red Wolves defeated Naft 1-0 in Tabriz.

Persepolis was defeated 1-0 by Siah Jamegan in Mashad; these three points saved the north-eastern Iranian club from relegation.

The top three clubs: Persepolis, Esteghlal, and Tractor Sazi (play-offs) will be featured in the 2018 AFC Champions League, along with the winner of the Hazfi Cup.  If Tractor Sazi wins the 2016-17 Hazfi Cup (vs Naft Tehran), they will directly qualify for the 2018 AFC CL, and fourth place Zob Ahan will qualify for the play-offs before the group stage of this tournament.

Saba Qom and Mashin Sazi Tabriz have been relegated to the Azadegan League for the upcoming season.
